Stylish 3-D computer animation, good characters.

Like a rollicking adventure from the fevered boyhood imagination of Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes: the gooey aliens, the boy-genius gadgetry. Except with Jimmy it's real.

As frothily entertaining as this caper is, it's unlikely to prove as popular with grown-ups as Shrek and the Toy Story movies.

This little charmer both celebrates and kids the corny conventions of family sitcoms.

Jimmy Neutron just doesn't have enough power to sustain itself to feature length, though children -- the movie's real audience -- may be so dazzled by the spectacle of Jimmy flying through space with his robot dog that they won't notice.

[W]hen they went into the outerspace adventure it just got so silly and it didn't really go anywhere and it just kind of lay dead there.

The voice work is well executed and the '50s-style settings and designs mixed with contemporary references and gadgets make for interesting visuals.

After Monsters, Inc., this movie may be a bit of a letdown, but there are some scenes that will delight elementary -school-age children and older preschoolers.

There's barely more invention in the animation than in the concept.
December 21, 2001
A lickety-split, madly packed, roller-coaster entertainment that might almost have been designed to make you scared of how much smarter your kids are than you.
December 21, 2001
More clever than we have any right to expect.
December 21, 2001
The most delightfully original children's film of 2001.

It doesn't have the little in-jokes that make Shrek and Monsters, Inc. fun for grown-ups. But adults who appreciate the art of animation may enjoy the look of the picture.

One of the pleasant surprises of the holiday season.

Maybe I'm hopelessly mired in my own private Retroville. After Jimmy Neutron was over, I felt glassy-eyed and a little headachy.
December 21, 2001
The intentionally stylized feel of a computer game fits the story's tone, somewhere between "Tomorrowland" today's world of cell phones and headphones.
December 21, 2001
This boy genius should be grounded.

It's certainly nothing worse than a Saturday-morning cartoon. But, aside from the sparkling animation, it's not substantially better either.
